Subject: Eerie AKG short story
This creepy short story features Detective Gryce in his younger years trying to solve the murders of many drowned wealthy older men. To do so, he has to go undercover into the seedy underbelly of the city.

I enjoyed this story, and Carolin's reading was very good, as usual. There were a few words that were slightly mispronounced, but nothing that took away from the enjoyment of the story.
